Hot Tea (infusion) for parasites

by An excerpt from Herbal Antibiotics

October 2006

This is a traditional infusion used to eliminate intestinal worms. For malaria, it should be twice as strong, and the dosage doubled. It is very bitter and should be used with caution.

2 ounces of Wormwood
2 quarts of water

Place Wormwood in container, pour near-boiling water on top, cover tightly and let sit overnight. Strain, and press Wormwood to remove as much liquid as possible. Drink 1 cup 4 times per day. This amount will last 2 days. Make it again every 2 days, and continue for 8 days.

KUDOS to your shipping department... because it was pouring rain the day that it arrived and the UPS guy left it at the end of the driveway (we have a gate to keep the animals out of the orchard). It was in a plastic bag, but the box was still SOAKING wet. We looked at it and thought, "Well, whatever is inside is going to be completely destroyed." We peeled the box off (yes, peeled!) and you know what? Your shipping department did such a great job packaging everything that everything was completely dry. Even the book was perfectly intact. Yay! =)


Did You Know?

Cayenne powder has been used by researchers in Antarctica to help them bear the extremely cold temperatures. The cayenne powder is sprinkled into their boots before putting them on. As the powder slowly comes in contact with the skin through the socks, it will draw blood to the feet, thus bringing much needed warms to the extremities. The one draw back is the red powder stains light colored socks. From our readings, it seems the stained socks were a small price to pay for the great benefit of being able to feel your toes after a little while out in the blistering cold! After trying this on a number of occasions during the winter near Lake Superior, I'm also convinced the stained socks are worth it.
